Hello everyone. I hope that you all are having a good day. I wanted to show everyone this beautiful gift that I received for my birthday. I had wanted a princess dress for my 28th birthday this year, found one, then lost it by $1.00 on Ebay! I searched for two months, no luck..as each 50's dress is truly one of a kind. I stopped at a vintage shop in Columbus called Flower Child. When I got there I was just browsing through their vintage prom dresses, and still no luck...well I had to go to the bathroom while I was there and...guess what was sitting in the back room in the bathroom??...yep, this dress. I am not sure what it was doing back there, it had the price tag on it, but I assumed that it was being held for someone. I ended up leaving the shop empty handed, and sad that I would have no princess dress for my birthday...A few days later I went back to the shop with Jean and Lynne, since they were taking me out for my birthday, and Lynne asked "where can we find you a princess dress in here?" I said...well there was one in the bathroom a few days ago...I could see the question mark look on her face...as she said..."well, you must try it on then!" As we went back to the bathroom, the dress was still there in the backroom in the same place. We locked the bathroom door, and I had to try it on. Let me say that it took two women to squeeze me into this dress...lol! I was able to get this on though by myself when I wore it this day, but it was painful, and hard to breathe lol. I just need to loose a few inches! Anyway..so, we took the dress out of the backroom and carried it around, and decided to barter the dress down some. I made Lynne do it, because I was too scared...lol. She did get 30.00 knocked off of it, but the associate had to call the owner on the phone and she kept saying "What pink dress?" "Where did she find it?" one will never tell...lol. The birthday princess had to have her dress...
On another note. I found out today that I have female pattern baldness, so I will be loosing my hair at a slow process. Those were the results found from my scalp biopsy, and I am getting my stitches out Thursday. I have decided that since I will be loosing my hair that getting a wig at some point will be fun, and I can be a different girl everyday when that happens.
